3 out of 5 eggsAddendum to above

Pros: Same as above

Cons: Same as above.
Per Zmodo tech support I was informed that unreliable HDMI output is a known issue especially with output to TV's. Computer monitors are much more forgiving. This does not mean that it will not work with your TV via HDMI but that there is a reasonable chance of failure.

Other Thoughts: VGA output seems fine to TV with a VGA port.

3 out of 5 eggsGood/Easy but video glitch

Pros: Very easy setup. Good image quality from cameras. Interface is pretty intuitive. HDD (which you buy separately) is easy to install. Overall a very nice setup and a great buy.

Cons: 1) HDMI output glitch. It has an HDMI output which works on 1/4 TV's. The one TV where you can see an image comes with a purple hue that cannot be corrected though the device or the TV. VGA output works fine, not HDMI. Yes, I did try different types of HDMI cables. Consider this if your monitor/TV does not have VGA input. Not sure this is a real ding as I am aware that at times parts don't work. But see #4 below.
2) User Manual is poorly written. I completely understand that the manual appears to be originally Chinese then translated into English. A task I would not put on my worst enemy. Nevertheless, the author would fail a Technical Writing course. Don't need the manual as setup is easy and the QuickSetup guide is good. But if you want to learn a few more deeper items, the User Manual may be tough for some to read. Do NOT read if you are an English teacher.
3) Camera mount is limited. Not a ding, just something to note. The mounts that come with the CMOS cameras screw into the camera's bottom, not the camera's back end. So you cannot mount this on a soffit above and have the camera hang (otherwise the camera and the shade hood will be upside down). You will need a vertical surface (wall) or a horizontal surface to sit on. If there is another way, it blew right by me and I will stand corrected.
4) Return Option!! Be wary of this. Test all ouputs and cameras FIRST before you mount anything. It was AFTER I mounted the cameras, did the wire runs in a sweaty attic with a functioning VGA output that I then found the HDMI output did not work (my preferred method, it is 2014!). I called Zmodo and was told "time to RMA". They wer nice, legit. I spoke to NewEgg and was told that to RMA I have to send the ENTIRE order back, not just the malfunctioning box with the HDMI, but the cameras and wires too!! So I would have to undo all my sweaty labor which took a while. NE is very polite and promptly sent me an RMA but I will just suck it up and use VGA only :-(

Other Thoughts: I like this unit and the cameras overall and recommend it provided you are aware of the above. PLEASE do a full assembly and demo including all cameras and all outputs and recording functions (if you install a HDD) on your kitchen table before you install anything. If you find something wrong after install...don't say I didn't warn you!
